Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques
Les Post-Sapiens sont le résultat de formes émergentes se dégageant petit à petit des multiples avatars que l'homme adopte de nos jours, du fait notamment de l'influence qu'exerce sur son évolution les nouvelles sciences et technologies.

Modular Robotics' MOSS Kit Makes Building Robots a Snap

Modular Robotics' MOSS Kit Makes Building Robots a Snap | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

Building robots is hard. Seriously hard. Not only do you have to construct them physically, but even after you've got them all wired up with motors and sensors and batteries and whatnot, they won't actually DO anything until you've spent most of the rest of your life writing code. It's kind of depressing, when it comes down to it, because for those of us who aren't already professional roboticists, we have to deal with a learning curve like that really steep bit on the north face of the Matterhorn.

Philosophical Reflections: Transhumanists are the True Bioconservatives

Philosophical Reflections: Transhumanists are the True Bioconservatives | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it
According to the myth spun by transhumanists, bioconservatives oppose change, largely for no good reason at all. They just prefer things to stay as they are, no matter how much better they could be. They live in fear of the future, of new technologies that threaten to bring about a new, unfamiliar world. They are bioluddites. Like babies to their mother’s teat, they cling to the status quo. Like hobbits, they prefer to stay in their cosy underground homes rather than go out and discover the world, which is clearly very irrational since the world out there is so much better, as must be obvious to anyone not blinded by prejudice and fear. They like to think they are content with their lives as they are, but in fact they are just cowards, and because of their cowardice they turn a blind eye to all the wonderful opportunities that would arise from technological progress.

Google Buys AI Startup, Hires Ethics Board To Oversee It

Google Buys AI Startup, Hires Ethics Board To Oversee It | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

In an apparent move to feed its smart-hardware ambitions, Google has bought an artificial intelligence startup, DeepMind, for somewhere in the ballpark of $500 million. Considering all of the data Google sifts through, and the fact that it might be getting into robotics, it's not completely absurd that they'd want some software to give a robotic helping hand. (Facebook apparently wanted the company, too, and they've already made moves to wrangle their own sprawling web of information.) But the other part of this story is a little stranger: the deal reportedly came under the condition that Google create an "ethics board" for the project.

Des chercheurs démontrent mathématiquement qu'aucune forme de société ne peut être plus extrême que celles déjà connues.

Des chercheurs de l'ULB établissent le théorème de Bruss-Duerinckx sur l'enveloppement des sociétés: ils pointent deux sociétés extrêmes (communisme et capitalisme extrêmes) qui forment une enveloppe dont aucune société, quelle que soit sa politique, ne peut s'échapper.
